I visited in october and the quality of their coasters wasn't great. Also the throughput was terrible, Kumali could have been close to doing ten minute dispatches.

Which came first the turtle or the donkey?

Agreed about the load times especially mumbo jumbo. But love Kumarli , Velocity and Mumbo Jumbo. The spining kiddie coaster is insane.
For a family park not a bad line up they dont have the budgets of the merlin parks. Yes they may not be as WOW as some coasters but a pretty Solid line up. Just need that woodie.

It's going to be very similar or a clone of Roar-o-saurus at Story land New Hampshire. It will be manufactured by Gravity Group.

They have a good lineup of rides for a park on a small budget yes, but they have no excuse for those dispatch times. Hero is the worst coaster i've been on and velocity was not much better. Honestly, velocity has a good launch but is very, very rough.

I think a small woodie would be perfect for Flamingo Land and hopefully get the UK back into adding wooden coasters!

will prob not happen but imagen a woodie through and around the zoo, theres some pretty nice formed terrain aswell for some serious airtime, but im not complaining at all if they get a wood coaster, not many other uk parks are getting them and the only other uk park that is getting one looks pretty bad, forceless and a small version of mean streak.

Low to the ground airtime hills and i think alot of people will be happy =)

Not a lot of news from Flamingoland on anything new for 2015. Maybe they will not need planning permission if its a Corkscrew replacement.
